|An early morning or a late night?|
July 15, 2012
I got off from work just over an hour ago. It was my first overnight shift at the new store, and it went pretty damned good for a variety of reasons. One, I got a bit of surprise in the form of a dollar per hour raise. Turns out, this store's base pay is $.50 per hour more but the overnight premium pay is also $.50 per hour more. Not a bad side benefit to moving. I am also liking the overnight crew as well as the pace at the store. Even though there is so much more to do, they are running with six associates rather than two, so the work is much more spread out. I don't feel like I am in a frantic sprint for the first five hours, nor is the last hour as bad. I think this will do nicely for a while -- just long enough for me to get my bearings and such.
I am sitting at Mickey-D's to write this because as I have said before, the folks do not have internet at the house. I have taken to writing my entries o9n my net book and back posting when I have the opportunity. Trying to write on my BlackBerry gets to be frustrating and time consuming as well as thumb cramping. I figure I will try to take some time a couple days a week to sneak in to some place with free internet and catch up. It's the best I can do for the time being. Although, I have to admit -- writing at my folks is much more comfortable and pleasing. It's not like I have an evil spirit hanging over my shoulder any more.
Well, I better wrap this. I have about an hour to drive home and then to bed with me!
